Mason Jar Brownie Mix Gift Idea ( Paleo and Gluten-Free) - Super quick and easy!

If you’re looking for a simple DIY gift that anyone will love, the fudgy, chewy goodness of this mason jar brownie mix is just the thing. Though it’s pre-made like store-bought stuff, it’s so much better than a box! I’d like to say the secret ingredient is love, but the fact that it only uses high-quality ingredients like real butter and pure cacao powder probably has something to do with it, too.

To make this recipe affordable (and also fit it into a pint-sized mason jar), I cut my easy brownie recipe in half and adjusted the preparation instructions.

However, if you’d like to go with a larger batch, the proportions for the original recipe will fit in a quart-sized jar. (Just make sure to use the ingredient amounts and baking instructions from the original post.)

This brownie mix is easy to put together and makes a delicious gift for teachers, friends, grandparents, co-workers, neighbors, and whomever else you want to make smile. Put it in a cute mason jar and voila! You have an instant gift that just about everyone will love.

  • Combine cacao powder, almond flour, sucanat, salt and chocolate chips. Place in a half-pint mason jar and secure the lid. Attach decorative ribbon and a note that includes the ingredients and cooking instructions.


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Add 6 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil, 4 large eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to baking mix. Combine well using a hand mixer or food processor.
  • Lightly oil an 8×4 bread pan and then line with parchment paper. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the middle.


DECORATING YOUR JARTo decorate my jar, I hand-cut a tag using pinking shears, brown cardstock, and a hole punch, then wrote in the gift info and attached it with red and white bakers twine. Super easy! Put the following text on the front of the tag, and the baking instructions on the back.Fudgy Homemade Brownie MixIngredients: Cacao powder, arrowroot flour, sucanat, chocolate chips, sea salt.

  1. I LOVE this recipe. What a great idea. My aunt has given little jars of Christmas pudding like these as gifts to people before but I havnt found a brownie one like yours, u til now! I can’t wait to make these, but I can’t find sucanat for sale where I live, do you have an alternative that we could use? Thanks

  2. Is arrowroot flour an ingredient? It’s listed as part of the text to put on the tag, but it’s not listed in the first list of ingredients, instead, almond flour is listed. Which flour do u recommend? Are they interchangeable?

  3. I love all your DIY recipes, Heather! Thanks for sharing!
    I’m trying to make this as Christmas gifts. This doesn’t fit in a pint size jar; maybe that’s a typo? 1/2 c. cacao, 3/4 c. sucanant, 3/4 c. almond flour, and 1/4 c. chocolate chips don’t fit in a pint. That’s 2 1/4 cups of ingredients, so it follows that a pint jar, being 2 cups, is too small. I’ll try some random jars I have around instead.

    • What was your answer to the above question? Will these ingredients ALL fit into a PINT jar? After all, these amounts DO total 16 1/4 ounces…

  4. Where is the original post. I’m trying to make this and it doesn’t fit in a pint mason jar. It also doesn’t specify the amount of sucanat. Is it 3/4 cup? 3/4 what????
